Big Green Egg: Taco Burgers



Mexican Taco Burgers topped with black beans, cheese, sour cream & guacamole.  Grill them on Big Green Egg (or grill of choice) Delicious! | The Lowcountry Lady


I love (American) Mexican food.  I always have.  This appreciation must stem from my Colorado roots.  There are so many amazing Mexican food restaurants in Colorado!  I am still on the search for a delicious chili verde topped burrito in the lowcountry, but that's okay.


This recipe is no chili verde, but it is mouth-wateringly delicious.  So, if you share my love of Mexican food, then make these Taco Burgers tonight!

Ingredients -

The Seasoning:
  • ¼ cup chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
*slightly adapted from The Pinning Mama

Everything Else:

  • Hamburger buns (the French hamburger buns from Publix bakery are the best)
  • ¼ lbs ground beef
  • 1 - 2 Avocados
  • 6 diced grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon diced onion
  • Light sour cream
  • 1 can black beans
  • ¼ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Recipe -
  1. Fire up your Big Green Egg (or grill of choice).  For this recipe, cook with direct heat, on the cast iron grate, with the grill at about 400 degrees.
  2. Mix all of the seasoning ingredients together.  You'll have extra seasoning, so mix in a mason jar or other air-tight container.  (makes a great rub for flank steak or seasoning for traditional tacos)
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the ground beef and 2 heaping tablespoons of the seasoning until combined.
  4. Form hamburger patties.  Depending on the size, you should be able to make three to four.
  5. Put black beans in a pot on the stove and turn the heat on low.
  6. Put burgers on the BGE to cook, a few minutes on each side.
  7. In a separate bowl, add diced avocado, tomatoes, onion & juice of 1 lime.  Mix to your desired consistency.
  8. When the burgers are done (or just about done) toast hamburger buns on the grill.
  9. Assemble your burgers!  Add a small spoonful of sour cream to the bottom bun, top with burger, black beans, cheese & a generous spoonful of guac.
  10. Add the top bun.

Enjoy!!!
